4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
On tap at Russian River. Pours a dark brown with a creamy body and 1 finger of beige head. Leaves a thick lacing on the glass. Smells of roasted malts and chocolate. Taste confirms the nose, lots of roasted malts and chocolate flavors. Medium bodied stout with a very creamy finish, super smooth on the back of the tongue. Overall a very nice dry stout.

Pours black. Not a powerful aroma, bread and caramel. Good flavor, roasty, smokey flavors and a little caramel sweetness. Not an overpowering stout, but enjoyable.

Alla spina al brewpub. Forse la birra che ho meno apprezzato di Russian River, forse perchè il livello delle altre è eccelso ma questa mi è sembrata mancare di carattere. Una stout tutto sommato normale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. it pours a reddish brown body, clear, and topped by a light beige head. Curtains. The aroma is on the dark malty side, with coffee, bonfire notes and some dried fruits. Full body, pleasant carbonation, with flavors of roasted malts, some nuts and dried fruits. Lasting finish. Not impressive, but tasteful anyway. 130806
